What causes wrinkles?
There are many factors that may cause your skin to wrinkle. These include:
As you get older, the middle layer of your skin thins due to a decrease in production of collagen and elastin, which are structural proteins that provide strength and elasticity. Without these structural proteins, your skin loosens and sags, creating wrinkles.
Whenever you smile or frown, the muscles in your face fold your skin. Due to the structural changes that occur in your skin as you get older, these muscles work closer to the surface of the skin, making the lines and wrinkles more pronounced.
Additionally, because of the loss of collagen and elastin, your skin has a harder time smoothing out after the folding, creating more permanent lines and wrinkles.
The UV rays from the sun accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin and may lead to premature facial aging.
Smoking also negatively affects collagen production and contributes to early facial aging.
What is wrinkle reduction?
Resplendence MedSpa is a health, wellness, and anti-aging medical spa that offers many services to help reduce the visible signs of aging, including wrinkle reduction.
With wrinkle reduction treatments, they can smooth out the lines and creases on your face and help prevent new wrinkles from forming.
What are wrinkle reduction treatments?
The wrinkle reduction treatments at Resplendence MedSpa are cosmetic injections that address the facial expressions that lead to lines and creases. For wrinkle reduction, the team uses:
These injections are a form of botulinum toxin therapy. When placed in precise areas of your skin, the active ingredient in the injection stops movement of the muscle that causes the lines and wrinkles.
The wrinkle reduction treatments at Resplendence MedSpa can improve the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles.
What happens during wrinkle reduction treatment?
Wrinkle reduction treatment at Resplendence MedSpa takes only a few minutes and requires no downtime. During your session, your provider carefully injects small amounts of the wrinkle reducing medication into your skin.
You may feel a pinching sensation during the injection, but pain is minimal and well-tolerated by most people. Results from your wrinkle reduction treatment may appear within a day or two and last four to six months.
Resplendence MedSpa also offers dermal fillers, which are cosmetic injections that add volume under your skin and smooth out lines and wrinkles.
